I am pretty much a Microsoft guy except for a short fling with Linux, CGI and Perl in the mid-90ies. I am primarily a developer but consider myself to have strong database skills, good overall IT-Pro skills and a long web client side experience.
Besides doing IT I run a small record label and a web site for indiepop music.
